About this event

The London Olympics and Paralympics demonstrated the strength of the UK Information and
Communication Technologies (ICT) and technology supply chain sectors to deliver the most digitally
enabled Games ever, providing real time information, data, pictures, texts, phone calls and video
required for the Games.

These were the first ever social media Games – with www.London2012.com becoming one of the
most visited sports website in the world with 431 million visits, 109 million unique users, 15 million app
downloads and 4.73 billion page views. An estimated 4 billion spectators viewed the Games
worldwide.

At peak times, the network was carrying 60 gigabits of information a second, between 80 000
connections across 94 locations (four times the network capacity of the Beijing Games), setting the bar
for future Olympics and other major global sporting events. This seminar will explore lessons learned
from the Games and examine how these can be taken forward to future major projects.
